Mary Rousseaux, our 2014 juror, had this to say about the show:
"Relationship: the state of being or interrelated: the connecting
or binding participants in a relationship: a specific instance or type of
I am so excited to have been selected as this year’s juror; the work was
diverse and rich with content. The pieces I have selected for the exhibition
reflect the ideas of relationships. Being a mother, a wife, an educator and
an artist I have a broad understanding of the different types of
relationships that we as women encounter throughout our lives. Each role is
expressed with a different vocabulary, verbal and non-verbal. We communicate
through a glance or a touch, a small intimate movement that reveals our
emotions. The works in this show speak about the emotive expressions of the
self, how we relate to others and the internal dialogue that plays out
within. Colors and surface tensions begin to evoke a rich tapestry that
draws the viewer into the image creating a conversation. It is the interplay
of voices that I find to be so engaging in this body of work. At times the
viewer is privy to a private moment becoming a voyeur and at others welcomed
into the fold, each of these experiences serve to provoke change."
